My alleged Gios Torino bike (a Moser wanna be)
Hello folks, first post and first bike..
I've recently bought this bike that is covered all over with Francesco Moser's decals. It seems to be a Gios Torino. It has the GT logo on the fork crown. Also the bottom bracket shell has the same logo, but unlikely any other Gios I saw on the net, there are cable guides on the bottom of the shell covering the cut logo. It has stamped frame size and another 3 digits number (serial imo). There are 2 holes for a head badge, one of it sealed by the paint, the other is visible. The paint jobs is interesting.
The bike is a mix of parts.. campy chorus hubs and strada cranks, super record? brakes, Dia compe brake levers, colnago aero seat post, 3ttt stem and handlebars, some ugly plastic shimano gear shifters that I hate.. The headset is hatta swan.
I am trying to figure out what year it was made. According to rear dropouts it shouldn't be produced before '77. Have you guys ever seen something similar to this bike? I struggle to get more info about it. Already emailed Gios waiting for their reply.
Anyway, it's a great ride and I got it pretty cheap... Bunch of pictures in the link bellow:
